Philadelphia Police are searching for a bank robber after the second hold-up at the TD Bank Branch at 5501 Ridge Ave. in four days—a man they also believe robbed a Haverford bank this month.
Police Spokeswoman Officer Christine O'Brien said a man walked into the bank branch just after noon on Sunday. He gave the teller a note demanding money, O'Brien said. According to O'Brien, the man fled north on Ridge Avenue with $400 in cash. (see surveillance photos, right)
There are no reports of any injuries and no arrests have been made.
Police are looking for a man wearing a black hat and all-black clothing.
Police believe the same man is responsible for at least four incidents this month, including the robbery attempt at the same bank branch on Thursday. The would-be robber in that incident fled without any money.
Police say they think the same man is reposponsible for the following robberies:
- Feb. 14: Sovereign Bank, Bala Cynwyd
- Feb. 12: TD Bank, Haverford
- Feb. 2: Citizens Bank, Bala Cynwyd
The man is considered to be armed and dangerous by the police, who urge anyone with information to call the FBI at 215-418-4000. or the Philadelphia Police Department.
Police say there may be a reward for information leading to an arrest and that tipsters can remain anonymous.
